“I really liked this dish - good and filling. It is 8 points plus/serving. Recipe source: WW magazine (not sure which issue). I used red lentils as that is what I had, but I am pretty sure brown lentils will hold up better in this recipe.”

  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat and heat the oil and then add the vegetables and herbs (carrots -pepper) and cook for 5-10 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  2. Stir in the broth, tomatoes and lentils and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 45 minutes.
